In Philip R. Klein's latest article on the Southeast Texas Political Review, another of his "anonymous sources" identified the primary issue in the next Port Arthur city budget (emphasis is mine):
"We are going to have some serious problems with funding the budget come May of next year," said our source inside the Port Arthur City Council.

The problem? Seemingly the water and sewer infrastructure is collapsing and improvements are not keeping up with the problems. A whopping $30 million dollars is needed to bring the city up to where it should be according to our sources.

"It is like the little boy with his fingers in the dike. There will be a time when he runs out of fingers," said our source.
We'll revisit Klein's prediction after May of 2010.

Are the Port Arthur cops still having pep rallies like Klien said?

If he runs out of fingers, I have one I'll give him.

Could use his toes, but he can't reach due to his enormous gut.
